Temporary Limited Stay at Home Order 

In compliance with the Temporary Limited Stay at Home Order to Slow The Spread of COVID-19 from the State of California and the Pasadena Department of Public Health, RBAC programs have pivoted to allow only regulated lap swimming. This order has been extended and currently, there is no published end to the current restrictions.
Please check back frequently for updated information.
Please check our pool schedules for updated lane availability on our Lap Swim page.
In addition to this change, the RBAC’s operational hours will be modified temporarily as follows, effective December 7:
Monday – Friday: 6:00 am – 7:00 pm
Saturday: 6:00 am – 5:00 pm
Sunday: 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
The Pro Shop will be open Monday – Friday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm and will be closed on weekends. Online purchases are still available through our online store!
The Clubhouse Cafe is closed for the season.
Lap swim will be available with one swimmer allowed per lane. As of now, lanes will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, with a physically distanced queue for each pool. On deck, the queues will have a limited capacity due to space limitations. Upon the event those lines reach capacity, there will be physically distanced lines out in front of the Center. Staff will welcome you in the Center as space in the queue allows.  Team memberships and water fitness passes are also valid for lap swimming.
Aqua walking in the shallow end is allowed, during times that the shallow end is not reserved. Masks must be worn and you must maintain a distance of 8 – 10 feet from others at all times.
If you are arriving at the Center with an appointment for a program other than lap swimming, please bypass the line.
Drowning Prevention Classes & Swim Lessons
Per the California Regional Stay Home Order, drowning prevention classes, including swim lessons, are an essential service. For more information, please see our Swim Lessons page.
Physical Therapy
Physical Therapy will be allowed on a one on one basis with a licensed Physical Therapist. A prescription is required. For more information, please contact therapyinfo@rosebowlaquatics.org.
At the Center
The locker rooms are closed temporarily. Please rinse off prior to your swim using the outdoor showers. Family changing rooms will be available for restroom use as needed. There will be no showers available post-swim.
Everyone arriving at the Center must wear a face-covering at all times (except while eating or drinking, if applicable) while at the pool or on the grounds of the facility. This applies to all adults and to children 2 years of age and older. Only individuals who have been instructed not to wear a face-covering by their medical provider are exempt from wearing one.
Anyone with cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fever or chills, and/or currently under isolation or quarantine orders may not enter the facility.
Due to the new COVID-19 Order the RBAC at HOME (Zoom classes) is ending its season and the last day of classes is December 11th. We may be able to bring them back in 2021 in a slightly different format, as we know many patrons have benefited greatly from this program.
Online Yoga Classes
Yoga classes are still available with a Yoga pass! Click here for more information or to purchase a Yoga pass.
We remain absolutely committed to your health, safety, and wellness. We will continue to sanitize, disinfect, and follow proven hygienic practices to keep our staff and patrons safe and well.

Covid-19 Safety Measures at the RBAC

  • Doors that are staffed within the facility, except for specific doors that would provide added protection and security to the building or staff areas, will be propped open and to provide a touch-free experience when in use.
  • Enhanced cleaning of high-touch surfaces throughout the day;  hand-sanitizer is also available.
  • Lockers rooms are currently not available.
  • Bring your filled water bottle with you. Water bottle filling stations are open but the water fountains are not available.
  • All shared pool equipment shall be prohibited for any non-RBAC led program.
  • Directional signage will be utilized to guide individuals in appropriate foot traffic to provide physical distancing.

  • Please refrain from spitting in the gutters during your swim.
  • Snorkels may not be used while at our facility, as the use of snorkels can contribute to the spread of COVID- 19 more than normal under-water exhalation and side breathing.
